Car trading transactions revenues were RMB347.2 million (US$48.8 million), or 83.4% of total revenues in the third quarter of 2022, compared with RMB429.2 million in the same period of 2021.
  • The total outstanding balance of financing transactions the Company facilitated was RMB30,784.0 million (US$4,327.5 million) as of September 30, 2022. M1+ and M3+ overdue ratios for all financing transactions that remained outstanding and were facilitated by the Company were 2.44% and 1.27%, respectively, as of September 30, 2022, compared with 2.21% and 1.07%, respectively, as of June 30, 2022.
  • "Cango Haoche" platform had engaged 9,350 dealers in China's 31 provinces and 305 cities as of September 30, 2022. During the first nine months of 2022, total sales were 12,639 cars, including 7,677 new energy vehicles (NEVs), resulting in an NEV penetration rate exceeding 60%.  
  • Since the "Cango Haoche" APP was launched at the end of the second quarter of this year, it had attracted a total of over 300,000 page views and more than 27,000 unique visitors as of the end of September.

Mr. Jiayuan Lin, Chief Executive Officer of Cango, commented, "Within a complex external operating environment, COVID-19 resurgences continued to affect China's automotive industry. Despite these challenges, we delivered a solid performance in the third quarter with total revenues reaching RMB416.4 million, of which revenues from car trading transactions accounted for over 83.4%. The pandemic's ongoing impact together with favorable policies released in the last two quarters is reshaping the landscape of the domestic automotive industry. In light of evolving market trends and positive regulatory changes, we remained focused on our car trading transactions business and continued to elevate our one-stop platform service capabilities.

"In the third quarter, we made significant strides in upgrading our car transaction-related services for dealers and other automotive industry chain participants. Notably, we enhanced our 'Cango Haoche' APP with refined online product offerings and integrated after-market and financing services. The combination of tailored products and expanded vehicle inventory further improved our service capabilities as well as dealers' experience on our platform, reinforcing their stickiness. Furthermore, building on the success of 'Cango Haoche,' we officially launched our 'Cango U-Car' WeChat mini program, leveraging our long-time strengths to provide dealers with more convenient used car transaction services. As of September 30, 2022, 'Cango U-Car' had more than 3,000 registered dealers with increasing engagement.

"Looking ahead, given ongoing COVID-19 recurrences and the complex global macroeconomic environment, we will maintain our strategy focused on developing our new and used car businesses in parallel, creating value for OEMs and dealers and making car purchases simple and enjoyable," concluded Mr. Lin.

Mr. Yongyi Zhang, Chief Financial Officer of Cango, stated, "Our third quarter performance showcases the resilience and strength of our car trading transactions business, even in a challenging environment. In addition to the advancements we made in our platform, we implemented additional cost optimization measures and continued our share repurchase programs, underscoring our confidence in Cango's sustainable future. Going forward, we will continue to exercise strict cost discipline and invest selectively as we strive to upgrade our platform and operations to capture growth opportunities in both the new and used car markets."

Third Quarter 2022 Financial Results

REVENUES

Total revenues in the third quarter of 2022 were RMB416.4 million (US$58.5 million) compared with RMB800.6 million in the same period of 2021. Revenues from car trading transactions in the third quarter of 2022 were RMB347.2 million (US$48.8 million), or 83.4% of total revenues in the third quarter of 2022, compared with RMB429.2 million in the same period of 2021.

Total operating cost and expenses in the third quarter of 2022 were RMB608.8 million (US$85.6 million) compared with RMB839.6 million in the same period of 2021.

As a percentage of total revenues, cost of revenue in the third quarter of 2022 was 93.3% compared with 76.3% in the same period of 2021. The change was primarily due to an increase in car trading transactions' share of total revenues. Car trading transactions normally present a higher cost-revenue ratio, thus pushing up the overall ratio.

  • Net loss on risk assurance liabilities in the third quarter of 2022 was RMB85.0 million (US$11.9 million) compared with RMB55.5 million in the same period of 2021. Net loss on risk assurance liabilities was mainly due to a sequential increase in the default rate since 2021.

Definition of Overdue Ratios

The Company defines "M1+ overdue ratio" as (i) exposure at risk relating to financing transactions for which any installment payment is 30 to 179 calendar days past due as of a specified date, divided by (ii) exposure at risk relating to all financing transactions which remain outstanding as of such date, excluding amounts of outstanding principal that are 180 calendar days or more past due.

The Company defines "M3+ overdue ratio" as (i) exposure at risk relating to financing transactions for which any installment payment is 90 to 179 calendar days past due as of a specified date, divided by (ii) exposure at risk relating to all financing transactions which remain outstanding as of such date, excluding amounts of outstanding principal that are 180 calendar days or more past due.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measure

In evaluating the business, the Company considers and uses Non-GAAP adjusted net income (loss), a non-GAAP measure, as a supplemental measure to review and assess its operating performance. The presentation of the non-GAAP financial measure is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The Company defines Non-GAAP adjusted net income (loss) as net income (loss) excluding share-based compensation expenses. The Company presents the non-GAAP financial measure because it is used by the management to evaluate the operating performance and formulate business plans. Non-GAAP adjusted net income (loss) enables the management to assess the Company's operating results without considering the impact of share-based compensation expenses, which are non-cash charges. The Company also believes that the use of the non-GAAP measure facilitates investors' assessment of its operating performance.

Non-GAAP adjusted net income (loss) is not defined under U.S. GAAP and is not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. This non-GAAP financial measure has limitations as analytical tools. One of the key limitations of using Non-GAAP adjusted net income (loss) is that it does not reflect all items of expense that affect the Company's operations. Share-based compensation expenses have been and may continue to be incurred in the business and are not reflected in the presentation of Non-GAAP adjusted net income (loss). Further, the non-GAAP measure may differ from the non-GAAP information used by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore their comparability may be limited.

The Company compensates for these limitations by reconciling the non-GAAP financial measure to the nearest U.S. GAAP performance measure, all of which should be considered when evaluating the Company's performance. The Company encourages you to review its financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

Reconciliations of Cango's non-GAAP financial measure to the most comparable U.S. GAAP measure are included at the end of this press release.
